Portable amplifier from FiiO launched in India
Chinese audio products and accessories manufacturer, FiiO, has launched a new audio amplifier, the A5, in India. Weighing about 168g, the device has a sandblasted finish. The amplifier can be considered an upgrade from the earlier-launched E12 series, but with added features.
The device continues to use FiiO E12A’s MUSES02 and LME49600 opamp combination.
It uses high-precision metal film resistors to offer a total harmonic distortion rating of almost 0 per cent. With an improved signal-to-noise ratio of 115db, the FiiO A5 has a low resistance power management system with dual ±11V supplied power, much higher than the E12A’s ±7.4V supplied power.
The device offers an output of almost 800mW at 32Ω. With a battery backup of 880mAh, the company claims that the device has a playtime of about 13 hours on a single charge. It is also designed with an LED indicator, making it easy to determine when the device is about to run out of battery or when it is fully charged.
The FiiO A5 is available via eBay and the company’s website.
